Samsung has just announced an enhanced version of its Exynos 5 Octa chipset. Currently the Octa chipset is available only on the I9500 Galaxy S4 flagship.
The second generation Exynos 5 Octa might be called Exynos Evolved and will be officially presented next week. So far the teaser just says it’s “a more powerful, enhanced Exynos 5 Octa”.
It seems Samsung is launching the new chipset just in time for the Galaxy Note III that’s supposed to be unveiled in September and launch this Fall. The smartphone has been in the rumorlands for quite a while and it should be available in a couple of versions – one with Snapdragon 800 and another one powered by this improved Octa chipset.
Samsung promises to bring detailed specifications and more details on the new Exynos next week. Then we’ll learn more about its GPU and the exact clock speed of its eight cores.
